Peterson Has Had Enough

from the Portland Tribune,

Brent Peterson, who coached the Portland Winter Hawks to a Memorial Cup championship in 1998 and once captained the team, is tired of watching his favorite junior hockey franchise struggle….

Peterson decided awhile back to make an effort to do something about it. While he’s not leaving the Predators – he has a two-year contract in his pocket – he’s put together a formidable team of investors seeking to buy the team from Jim Goldsmith, Jack Donovan and John Bryant.

The group includes former Winter Hawks Brenden Morrow, Marian Hossa, Ray Ferraro and Scott Nichol (to name a few), along with PGA golfer and former Portland resident Peter Jacobsen, a longtime friend of Peterson.
